1. Identify The Correct Time For Planting Wildflowers In Your Area. Consider the factors for planting in a cool area, or in a warm area.
2. Prepare Your Site For Seeding Wildflowers. Choose a site with a minimum of 6 hours of sun . Then, prep your soil by removing all existing growth and debris. Better soil preparation = more flowers!
3. Scatter Your Wildflower Seeds. Follow the coverage rate and directions on your packaging. For the best results, check your soil temperature and watch the weather – if possible, let Mother Nature water your seeds!
4. Compress Your Wildflower Seed Into The Soil. Walk directly on top of the planting area, or use a seed roller. They need sun – never bury or cover wildflower seeds with soil!
5. Water Your Wildflower Planting. Water so that the soil is moist, not soaking wet, until the seedlings are about 4-6″ tall. After that, the seedlings will survive on natural rains.
6. Watch Growth & Blooms Appear. Sprouts will start in late spring or early summer. Sit back, grab your favorite beverage, and enjoy your wildflowers!
HOW TO GROW
When you’re getting ready to plant, consider average soil tempartures and the weather. We’ll also answer the question “How Much Seed Do I Need?” and show how to sow wildflower seed with the simple Split & Sand Method!
Spring Planting Wildflowers in Colder Climates
When planting seeds in cold climates that experience snowfall and freezing temperatures, you must wait until after all threat of frost has passed. Even after warm weather arrives in spring, there is still a lingering danger of late spring frosts that can kill off freshly-sprouted seeds and young plants.
The greatest threat to spring-planted wildflowers in cold climates is late spring frosts that can kill tender young seedlings. To avoid the risk of a cold snap harming your planting, plant after the last spring frost date chart for your area. Even after the risk of frosts has passed for the season, it’s best to wait for the soil and air to warm up enough to provide favorable conditions for your plants to grow. For fast growth and strong, healthy plants, plant when your soil temperature reaches a minimum of 55F, or as a rule of thumb, about the time that tomato plants are put outside.
Spring Planting Wildflowers in Warmer Climates
When planting seeds in warmer climates with intense summertime heat, it’s best to plant your wildflowers in early spring. This will allow young perennial wildflowers to establish without excessive heat, making for stronger and longer-lived plants, and annual wildflowers will bloom before intense heat arrives.
If spring temperatures warm up early, or if you’re planting in late spring, regular watering will be very important for establishing your wildflowers. For gardeners living in these climates, choosing native wildflowers and/or drought-tolerant species and mixes will bring the best results.
